Mr Milton is a consultant thoracic surgeon and qualified at Sheffield University in 1993. He undertook higher surgical training in cardiothoracic surgery in Yorkshire and was appointed to a substantive consultant position in 2007 in one of the largest regional centres for thoracic surgery in Europe. Mr Milton performs the full range of thoracic surgery, covering both benign and malignant conditions. The bulk of his practice involves treating people with primary lung cancer but an increasing part deals with removing metastatic cancer that has spread to the lungs. He performs minimally invasive (key-hole) surgery where possible and along with his colleagues he is keen to develop minimally invasive treatment for atrial fibrillation.

Mr Milton is particularly interested in quality of life after thoracic surgery, and patient satisfaction, including reducing hospital length of stay. He recognises the importance of continuous professional development to ensure that he is delivering the highest standard of care to his patients.
